AA Thought for the Day
April 6, 2023
A Genuine Reliance
We could actually have earnest religious beliefs which remained
barren because we were still trying to play God ourselves.
As long as we placed self-reliance first, a genuine reliance upon
a Higher Power was out of the question. That basic ingredient
of all humility, a desire to seek and do God's will, was missing.
